Subject Alternate solution for hardware portion of Water Sprinkler Use Case
Date Wed, 05 Jul 2017 09:44:44 GMT
Hi Samantha,

I have successfully launched an application on bluemix following your tutorial for Smart Water

I have successfully been able to receive simulated readings.

Now , I want to get real readings from a moisture sensor.

There are 2 problems here :

1)      I have a Grove moisture sensor that maybe difficult to connect to a Pi. But the I
am not sure if the Edgent application can be written on any other iot board ,except a Pi.

Though I have found a way to directly connect the grove sensor to Pi, I am not too confident
with this approach.


2)      I have an Arduino base shield on which many grove sensors can be connected.

I can mount my shield(having the grove sensor connected ) on my Arduino uno .

After that , I can connect this entire Arduino setup to my raspberry Pi 3 via Serial Communication.

Please guide me if it would be a good idea , to get the sensor readings from the Arduino to
the pi and then send them to the Edgent application(on the Pi) for Edge computing.

I have to submit this solution by 7th July 2017.
Please help.
